Yes, it's been a long time

I know it's been a long time since I posted here. My excuse? Lots happening elsewhere.

First up, Web Directions South is shaping up bigger and better than ever. Amazing speakers and workshops, partiesand much else besides. Discount pricing ends Friday BTW, if you haven't signed up yet. You will kick yourself if you miss it.

Secondly, we just launched Web Directions East. Tokyo, November 7, 8 and 9. Amazing speakers (Eric Meyer, Dan Cederholm, Jeremy Keith, Andy Budd, Doug Schepers and Jeffrey Veen,as well as local super stars of the web as well.)

Then, we launched a web professionals job board - over 30 great jobs for web professionals already online, from all over Australia, as well as NZ, the UK and more. It's free to post, and 100% self service - so if you are looking for great contractors, full or part time staff, then post your ads there.

We've also released a bet of Style Master 5 for the Mac, with a windows version to come, along with a new help desk for westciv, and dedicated Style Master blog.

Plus we have a number of really exciting projects in the pipeline, one of which you'll be hearing about in the next few days, and another by the end of the month.

On the personal front, Scarlett was 5 months old yesterday - so two girls well and truly under 3 is plenty to keep our hands full.

And lastly, I think, I've been mountain biking with some seriousness (for someone my age with nothing better to do) these last few months, and next Sunday I'll be doing my first 100km race.

Stay tuned here, and various other places for news of all of the above.

Busy is good, I always say. Thanks for the posts from another Vancouver web design person. Is it me or is Vancouver loaded with Web designers?

It's always good to keep yourself busy. For my case, I don't really find time anymore for myself. Always some new come up, keep up with it...

Time for Web Directions West (or something like that!) I'm in the UK! Ok, maybe it's not relevant, but Im having a bad day, and I want to see if other designers agree with me! I think web designers need to start thinking creatively, and with their customers' best interests in mind. Using css galleries and website portfolios to generate ideas (and steal concepts) is just lessening the impact truly amazing web design could have. We all need to be unique, insightful, and most of all CREATIVE!

Man, that ''Web Directions East'' rocks, keep it with that good work, and i'll keep on touch!!!
